Welcome Parents!

Get involved with our Career Center

There are many ways to become involved with current ECU students through the Center. Some of these include...

  • Offer to be a contact for students interested in conducting informational interviews. These are structured conversations in which students can learn about your career field and obtain advice for getting into that particular career.
  • Participate in a career panel to educate students about the job search process and offer information about how they can become involved with your company.
  • Hold an informational session for students about your company/organization to increase student awareness - this is especially helpful to hold the day before conducting on-campus recruiting.
  • Conduct on-campus interviews to generate an applicant pool for current openings.
  • Participate in campus career fairs.

Contact us at 580.559.5890 or saunkeah@ecok.edu to become involved with the campus community.
